Middle School News The Wellbeing in Middle School this term has focused on building resilience. They have looked at problem solving approaches with the aim of instilling the following, Key skills and attitudes that contribute to resilience: 1. Helpful and positive thinking skills and attitudes by providing students with opportunities to normalize instead of personalize stressful events: use humour, develop a sense of purpose and practice positive self talk. 2. Resourcefulness by providing students with opportunities to practice persistence, decision making, goal setting, problem predicting, problem solving and organizational skills. 3. Emotional Intelligence by providing students with opportunities to recognize and manage their own emotions and develop skills for reading and responding empathetically to others emotions. Many of the students have contributed great ideas and clear opinions in their classes. I have worked with 8A and found their contributions both thoughtful and helpful to others. The Year 7 classes have had a great time with Ms. Duykers as Year Coordinator and the other Year 7 teachers. They contributed the idea of 2,4,6,8 Appreciate Cards to be used as part of the School Wide Positive Behaviours Program. We will continue this program in Term 3 with a focus on the seven most effective ways to block cyber bullying. In the School Wide Positive Behaviours we have introduced Positive Friday and Positive Assemblies. These have been very popular with students, especially Lunch at the Caf and iTunes Cards as prizes for positive behaviours in and out of class. The Year 7 Cook Off last Monday was the culmination of a terms work for one Year 7 class. I was lucky enough to be a judge along with Ms Millar. It was tough, the standard was high but the winning chocolate cake was fabulous! Thanks to Ms Jegou and Ms Duykers for a great program. With a focus on Oral Literacy this term, I have been invited to listen to a number of oral presentations from students across subject areas. Even in Mathematics students have been encouraged to explain their thinking processes and peer tutor other students in Year 7. As the mid-year holiday approaches, we hope all students and staff have a good break and come back refreshed and ready for a busy second semester.
